HC Deb 10 July 1903 vol 125 cc1141-2
SIR FREDERICK RASCH (Essex, Chelmsford)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he has considered the case of John Devine, late 2nd Dragoon Guards, invalided from Abbasieh, March, 1895, totally disabled from accident in the gymnasium, and who has applied for a life pension in consequence and been refused; and, if so, will he state what action, if any, he proposes to take in the matter.


This man has been awarded a permanent pension from the 3rd ultimo—the date of his last appli- cation. From the last medical report on him it appears that his capacity for earning a livelihood is impaired to the extent of one-fourth only.
